One of the most common regions of allelic loss in colorectal tumors is chromosome 18, which is lost in more than 70% of carcinomas, and in almost 50% of late adenomas. This region of loss has been mapped to chromosome 18q and a gene called Deleted in Colorectal Cancer (DCC). DCC encodes an ~185 kD glycoprotein with significant homology to the neural cell adhesion molecule and other related cell surface glycoproteins. The predicted amino acid sequence of DCC cDNA consists of a 1448 amino acid (aa) long transmembrane phosphoprotein. The extracellular domain consists of 1098 amino acids and has 42% sequence homology to cell adhesion proteins of the neural cell adhesion molecule (N-CAM) family. DCC mRNA is found to be expressed in normal colonic mucosa, but its expression is reduced or absent in the majority of colorectal carcinomas. The loss of heterozygosity and subsequent alteration of DCC expression has also been observed in tumors of non-colorectal origin. G92-13 recognizes human DCC. A truncated recombinant protein containing the extracellular domain of the human DCC was used as immunogen.

|Application Notes||IMR 32 human neuroblastoma cells (ATCC CCL 127) are suggested as a positive control. By western blot, DCC-specific antibodies typically identify protein species with molecular weights of ~175-190 kD. Doublets in this range have been reported in brain. Several smaller immunoreactive species, representing degradation products, cross-reactive species, or DCC forms arising from alternative splicing of DCC mRNA or in vivo processing of the DCC protein may also be identified. Another DCC clone (mAb G97-449, ABIN967443) has been published for immunohistochemical staining of paraffin-embedded tissue sections.|
